The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) chose Prague as the 56th destination of its congress. Over 1,264 congress industry experts from 79 countries from around the world came to Prague to attend the event. Dubai has now begun the countdown to host 2018 ICCA Congress. The ICCA Board of Directors has selected Kaohsiung, Chinese Taipei, on the island of Taiwan, as the host destination for the 2020 Congress.The Prague Congress Centre (PCC) had been preparing for the Congress, which was organised by the Prague Convention Bureau with the support of more than 40 local partners very carefully. The reconstructed premises, the new corporate identity, the digital navigation system, state of art technologies and, in fact, the revival of the whole building had laid a solid foundation for the preparation of a successful event that was of great importance not only to the PCC but as well to Prague.In another development, ICCA is now a CAE Approved Provider, meaning ICCA’s education sessions meet the requirements for fulfilling the professional development requirements to earn or maintain the Certified Association Executive credential.
